Reader Gives Murray a Sound Trashing

November 19, 1988

Jim Murray's undying love for Sugar Ray Leonard is so sickeningly obvious in every boxing article he writes.

Murray (Nov. 13) says Leonard gave Marvin Hagler a "sound thrashing" for his title. If I recall, it was a split decision. Leonard won the show, not the fight. He won the hearts of people like Murray who think it's so neato when Ray does his cute little Ali-ripoff shuffle or winds up that useless bolo punch.

If there is a rematch, Hagler will rip him.
